Ellis unveils anti-poverty plan | Politics | Macon.com

Former Macon Mayor C. Jack Ellis, now in a runoff against incumbent Mayor Robert Reichert for the new office of Macon-Bibb County mayor, announced a plan Thursday to combat poverty.

Decrying Macon’s high poverty and unemployment rates, Ellis spoke at the vacant Eugenia Hamilton School on Pio Nono Avenue.

Ellis unveiled a plan to gradually reduce poverty in Macon-Bibb County, relying heavily on state and federal grants for new programs.

“That’s what we did before,” said Ellis, who was Macon’s mayor from 1999 to 2007. “There is money out there.”
